Suge Knight Gets The Worst News Ever In Court Today?!?!

Former rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison Thursday for the death of a man during a hit-and-run incident on the set of the movie “Straight Outta Compton.”

Knight, 53, pleaded no contest to manslaughter earlier this month in connection with the death of Terry Carter.

The former Death Row Records co-founder had been facing life in prison for Carter’s death and one count of attempted murder in the case of Cle “Bone” Sloan, who was maimed after Knight allegedly struck the pair with his truck.

Knight had also been charged with one count of hit-and-run.

Video of the incident showed a truck driven by Knight pulling into the entrance of a Compton restaurant near the site where the movie was being filmed in 2015.

The driver of the truck is seen being approached by Sloan, a security guard, and the two men appear to talk for a few moments, with Knight remaining inside the vehicle.
Suddenly, the vehicle backs up, knocking Sloan to the ground. While still in reverse, the truck moves out of range of the security camera.
The vehicle is then seen zooming forward, back into camera range, running over Sloan a second time, and then running over a second man, Carter, a former rap music label owner.
Carter later died.

The maximum penalty for voluntary manslaughter in California is 11 years in prison, but that was doubled because of Knight’s prior convictions under the state’s three-strikes law, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said.

Knight faced another five years because the conviction is for a serious and violent felony and one additional year for a deadly weapon allegation involving the truck he used.
